"Maintains its artistic magnificence after more than 30 years."

Washington Post

Imagine two awe-inspiring forces meeting for an epic evening of film and music – a screening of one of the greatest films ever made accompanied live by the might of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and a 60-voice choir.
Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi masterpiece is celebrated for its technological realism, innovative special effects and brilliant use of music from Richard Strauss, Johann Strauss and György Ligeti. Under the expert command of conductor, Robert Ziegler, more than 150 singers and musicians shed new light on this cult classic.
